Have you ever noticed when two people in identical, high-stress situations, that one of them gets stressed out and the other one handles the situation with ease and grace?
It’s because of the different ways they internalize what’s going on. Stress doesn’t exist in the outside world; it just exists inside your head. It’s up to you which way you choose to perceive it.
Stress is an internal phenomenon.
And remember – stress is not good or bad. It just IS. We need a certain amount of stress to motivate us but we need to understand ourselves to know when “too much” is having an adverse effect on our mind and body.
Your reaction to stress can become a habit. So, as the famous quote by Socrates, “Know thyself”, it is important to become aware of how you respond and react to situations and people so you can make positive changes.
The good news is you can change your habits.
So take charge and be your own boss – make a conscious choice to be happy, relaxed and stay positive by using these five strategies:(I guarantee that if you use them every day, they will make a massive positive difference in your life).
Have a positive and productive week.
